Ladies golf winds up for the season

A report from Christina Lake Ladies’ Golf

The Christina Lake Tuesday Ladies Golf Club held their annual scramble and wind-up luncheon meeting on June 26, with president Cathy Manson presiding.

The club now has 56 members, and the club received the exciting news from treasurer Tina Flanagan that the club was approved for a grant from RDKB Area C for $500 for the Ladies’ Invitational in August.

Heather Shilton, vice-president, reported on ticket sales from the men’s open and club captain Lyn Mackey held a draw for door prizes. Raffle baskets winners were Barb Bannert and Glenda Higgins. Lynne Webster and Fern Walsh thanked members for donating prizes for the Ladies Open, as the club will not solicit from local businesses this year due to the flood.

Pat Lawrence from the match committee declared a tie for the day’s scramble between two teams: Paz Alguire, Linda McGrath, Audrey Whyte, Lynda MacLean; and Arlette Dunbar, Joie Lavallee, Lynne Webster and Luisa Vachon.

Certificates were awarded by Glenda Higgins to winners from the eclectic tournament held May 15 and May 22 and the club championship tournament held June 12 and 13.
